Tayrona National Park

Tayrona National Park holidays

Tayrona has a collection of wonderful windswept beaches, strewn with giant boulders and fringed with virgin rainforest.  The region was once the territory of the Tayrona indigenous tribe and some archaeological remains have been found in the park.  The park stretches for 20 miles along the coast from the Bahía de Taganga near Santa Marta to the mouth of the Rio Piedras.  The scenery varies from sandy beaches along the coast in the north to rainforest at an altitude of 900m on the southern limits of the park.  The extreme western part is arid, with light-brown hills and cactus.  The central and eastern parts of the park are wetter and more verdant, largely covered by rainforest.    At least 56 endangered species live in the park but unfortunately most are very elusive.

The beaches in the park are among some of the most picturesque on the Caribbean coast.  However, severe currents ensure that most are not suitable for swimming, although it is possible to swim and snorkel in a select few. Beaches are marked with warning flags and signs.  Some of them are bordered by coral reefs.    

May to June and September to November are the wettest periods.  We recommend that you visit in the low season (February to November) to avoid the large influx of visitors.
